Snappers and Satan

One spring day a huge snapper turtle started a slow stroll across my front lawn. My “Happy –go -lucky” black lab dog named Jubilee began to play with the very dangerous creature. I nearly panicked. I was picturing a nose less canine and a huge vet bill.
So I cautiously approached the bony-shelled turtle. The very large head hissed at me! The powerful jaws wanted to crush my bones. With lots of prayer I fearfully managed to wrestle the massive turtle into a 5-gallon bucket. The turtle’s evil head was on the bottom and its big feet and tail were sticking out the top of the bucket. I carried it down to my pond and let it go. (Another reason to not swim in my pond.)
I was very careful and alert, because I wanted to keep all my toes and fingers.
SATAN IS LIKE A SNAPPER! Do not play with the evil one!
“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
Satan wants to steal from us!
Satan wants to destroy everything beautiful about us!
Satan wants to kill our joy, marriage, family, church and life!
BE ALERT! SATAN IS A SNAPPER!

Tim, great analogy. I remember the first time I came face-to-face with a snapper was in Oklahoma. I didn't know that snakes also were hiding in the tall grass. I was just walking with a bunch of others looking at the Pecan trees. Sort of goes with your story ... we have to pay attention to our environment. Thanks for a great story!
